Homosexuality Legalized in India

Late last week, after 149 years of living in fear of legal prosecution thanks to a colonial-era law, Indian homosexuals scored a huge victory: India decriminalized homosexuality.

Here's a short list of things I'm looking forward to following this development:

- Reading about couples who can relax a bit after years or decades of being forced to keep their relationships under wraps

- The legalization of gay marriage in India (I can dream, can't I?)

- Serious Bollywood plotlines about gay couples (there was a farcical one last year)

- The extinction of stories like this

- Being able to use a more suitable photo for a post on this topic instead of the one I scrounged up from last year's trip
